Internet Research Applications in Health and Human Services Degree Programs: Promises and Problems
Mid-South Instructional Technology Conference,
As research through the Internet becomes the method of choice by many students, assessment of Internet materials, student motivation to use traditional research methods, and other pedagogical concerns have become issues in the learning process. This paper describes experiences of faculty from several applied disciplines (i.e., social work, human environmental studies, criminal justice, and nursing) in the College of Health and Human Services at Southeast Missouri State University in the use of the Internet as a tool for student research. Information analysis, opinion synthesis, and methodological applications offer common problems and opportunities for the diverse disciplines. Assessment criteria, problems and solutions in the use of the Internet, and suggestions for possible efforts are reviewed. (Author/AEF)
